Definition: Web apps or online software runs over the Internet instead of on your computer hard drive as desktop software does. Online software runs within your browser like Firefox or Internet Explorer, while web apps may run within or download directly to a financial software package.

Most online financial software stores your financial data on secure file servers owned or rented by the software company, and not on your hard drive or local network.

One of the advantages of online personal finance software is that no software is installed on your computer, so there are no potential problems with installing or updating software. Another advantage is that because online financial software and web apps run through a browser, whether you have a Windows or Mac system is usually not an issue.
